This holiday season, we’re highlighting local businesses as part of our #StayLocal2020 campaign. Scroll to the bottom for more information.

If your idea of holiday cheer includes a visit from Krampus, decorating your tree in mostly earth tones (or all black), and skulls dressed in Santa hats. This is the list for you.

These local makers specialize in the dark and delightful – the Yule-ish and Ghoulish – with gifts that you can appreciate all year long.
